No matter what's my opinion on whether fresh blood is good or bad for
the social ctte, I doubt it would make any difference to state a rule
like that. The committee will be elected and I seriously doubt any
"fresh blood" DD will be elected in such a position by the DD body.

Sure there's no warranty that this is the cause, but I'm confident
enough in it to prefer not to write down such a rule.
